Big Pink Box December Double Up!

   Ready for double the goodies? This month The Big Pink Box offered two boxes filled with two different sets of swag from women owned companies! I was pretty impressed with what I got, it was a pretty good variety!

Box One

   The first box had some pretty cool stuff, check out what I got!

   I honestly have to say I wasn't impressed with this compact mirror. I love that it was handmade, but it didn't pop to me. I make things like this as well, and I honestly kind of felt like the design was poorly constructed. I really hoped that this wasn't how all of the designer's work looked like. Luckily my friend Nikki got one too, and hers was way nicer than mine! I went to the designer's website and saw that there are a lot of very cute items! I wish my compact was a better representation of the designer's work, it looks like it was done in a hurry. Either way, I was still very glad to see something handmade like this in my bag! ($25.00)

   These are really cute earrings! They are made with a colorful fabric wrapped around them. I have never had a pair of earrings like these, I like how they look! It is a nice change of pace from my usual spikes and faux tapers! ($10.00)

Pink Leopard Frog

   This was one of my favorite items! This spiked bracelet is punk chic! It's also stretchy so it's easy to put on. The designer also included a really cute hand drawn button of a girl with a frog on her shoulder, maybe it's their mascot? ($25.00)

   I was not expecting this in my box. I got a sparkly pink bowtie! I have never ever gone Bill Nye couture, but I figured to try it out. But not before getting my bf to wear it first! 
  As far as wearing it around my neck, it's a no go, it felt too weird for me. It's still very cute, so I will just use it in my hair! ($15.00)

Haute Designs and Styling
phone: (816) 756-4402

   This is another handmade item, most likely made from sculpey clay. It's a simple pair of earrings with a simple blue bubble design. I actually like them, they're different, definitely not something I'd deliberately look for on my own. But there's something about them that I just really like. ($7.00)

Body By Brown Roque

   This was very nice! I love the scent, and it made me feel so relaxed. This is a lavender-apple and tea milk bath, you take a scoop of the powder and add it to your bath and bask in the luxury! My skin felt so soft afterwards, I want more! (full size $8.00)

      At first I thought that there was something wrong with this item, the oil was solid in the bottle. But after warming it up it started to liquify again and I have to say, this stuff rocks! It smells so nice, and even though it's an oil it doesn't feel very greasy on the skin. Once you work it in that's it, and your skin feels really soft and smells nice! (full size $17.00)

Box Two

The second box was pretty awesome too!

Rich Girlz

   I thought this was cute, but it isn't really my thing. I like the turquoise beads with the silver, but this didn't really catch my eye. ($30.00)

L.A.N.D. (Lovingly and Naturally Designed)
phone: (850) 602-4722
twitter: Whipfinity

      This stuff is a natural jack of all trades! Whipfinity is a formula that works for both hair and skin. Just so you know everything this stuff can do, here's the site description:

Hair Uses:Whipfinity can be used to style (when flat-ironing it's a heat protectant), braid & twist (gives a light hold & helps stretch & define curls), to oil the scalp (rub hands with it together & it will liquify), as a "pre-poo", to moisturize, & to add shine to your hair. Because Whipfinity is so gentle it also works very well on children's hair. It is compatible with all hair types (relaxed or natural), and ethnicities.

Skin Use:To get the most use out of your product we advise you to rub your hands together with it to liquify it, and simply rub into any area in need of moisture. Your skin will sigh in relief! It is also helpful with healing scars.

   After using it on both my hair and my skin I can honestly say this stuff is great! My hair looked and felt great, and on my skin it just melted and locked in moisture! My hands felt so soft! I will probably be getting more of this later, but for now the sample I got is more than enough. (full size $10.00)

nice reflection :p
   I thought this was pretty cool, the face is silver and the led light shines through to show you the date and time. The band is comfortable, but I wish the face didn't say LED Watch. It takes away from the coolness and makes it feel a little cheap. The directions were also kind of confusing, it seems easy enough but the buttons seemed to be opposite of what the directions said.  Unfortunately two days after I got this it started acting weird and now it no longer works. Definitely my least favorite item of both boxes. ($25.00)

Zombies & Lollipops

   This is another one of my favorites! I love the name of the brand too! This bracelet has black beads with one little pink skull bead to give it flare. This is my kind of bracelet! I love zombies, and lollipops are delicious! I will definitely be checking out more items from this brand! ($10.00)

Freak Show Polish

   Yet another favorite I found is this nail polish. It is a glitter polish named after an act you might find in the circus, Snake Lady. This is one of a few in the collection also named after different aspects of the circus. I thought this was so cool! The bottle is cute, the polish is awesome and the brand name is really unique! I went to the site and got the others in the line because they were all so cute! (full size $9.00)

FineTuned Threads

   I received a gift card from this brand. I went to the site, and nothing was really my taste. This brand specializes in street wear, and no offense, I was kind of turned off when I saw the banner at the top say "Threads, Trims and Shit". The clothing is custom made, and I believe you can make a custom order, but there was nothing on the site that I would want to wear, so I will pass on this. It was nice of them to include a gift card, but even if I wanted to use it, I had no clue how, because you apparently can't buy on their website since there's no cart.

   This soap was alright, I didn't particularly enjoy the scent though. It was kind of like if you mixed Ivory and Irish Spring together. I did use this to wash my hands and it did cleanse well, and moisturized my hands.  (full size $8.00)

   Check out the Big Pink Box, January boxes are now available! I will not be buying a January box, as I have my eye on something else for that month. These boxes go fast so grab your January box now!

  1. I liked a lot of the stuff you got. The pink lepord frog person gave me something so crappy compared to what you got, but grass is always greener right? I love this review, and thank you for your honest opinion.
